Thinking about National Preparedness Month always think SOLAR!
“The Magnum MLT4000S Solar Hybrid Light Tower, developed in cooperation with the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), features an LP-fueled back-up generator to keep its batteries charged in all conditions. During the day, a solar-panel array charges the light tower’s batteries for nighttime operation.” http://www.constructionequipment.com/magnum-power-products-mlt4000s-solar-hybrid-light-tower?eid=216286244&bid=927703

A new innovative solar panel array technology designed by Ecosphere Technologies promises rapid deployment for energy production in off-grid locations.
This remote ‘mobile-solar-powered generator’ runs on high power photovoltaic panels that extend from its container combined with an easy to set up wind turbine.
What are your plans during an emergency?
Once everything has settled down and we’ve made sure everyone is safe, the first thing we should do is set up charging stations for public use. It’s our duty, and it’s our marketing opportunity.
And what’s stopping you from setting up a charging station in at a local fair, or event. You don’t need a disaster to get out and have customers experience solar for themselves. What’ll it cost you?
